Simply Quilts visits Robin Cowley, a quilt artist who uses tried-and-true basic geometric shapes to achieve a completely innovative Art Deco look. She makes geometry a part of the quilt using clearly defined shapes that seem to float over the background, creating a post-modern feel.
Steps: Circle Applique Tip
1. First, cut a perfect circle from heat resistant template plastic using an Olfa standard-duty circle cutter.
2. Place the circle on the chosen fabric and trace around the perimeter.
3. Cut out with a 1/4-inch seam allowance (figure A).
5. Place template plastic on wrong side of fabric and pull the gathering thread around the plastic (figure C).
6. Place the circle on a towel lined pressing surface. Spray heavily with starch and press flat using a steam iron on the cotton setting.
